Mama Elephant August Stampede

August 15, 2014



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!




I'm soooo thrilled to be a part of this celebration not only as a card maker but also as a stamp designer!! I'd like to say a big thank you to Mama Elephant for giving me this great opportunity!

(Please make sure that this is a special collaboration between Mama Elephant and me. It means that I design stamp sets for ME this time only. I'm sorry that my announcement in the previous post have caused some confusion to some of you.)

Hopefully you should have come here from Laura's blog. If not, you'll find a list of designers participating today's hop at the bottom of this blog post. 

For today's hop, I created a set of mini birthday cards for kids using the Carnival Cupcakes and Carnival Toppers.


Each card is about 4" square. The cupcakes and animals are from Carnival Cupcakes set, and the candles, ribbon, and party hat are from Carnival Toppers set.



Both of these stamp sets have coordinating Creative Cuts sets. So it's pretty easy to cut out these tiny images!:D 


To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamps released! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlights day. You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win!

Just leave a separate comment for each!
